Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) is a set of standards for conducting toxicology studies. They define how these studies must be planned, performed, monitored, recorded, reported, and stored for future reference. However, not all toxicology studies require compliance with the GLP standards. Basic screening tests where the safety of the product is not assessed do not require GLP compliance. Non-GLP never indicates complete ignorance of the GLP standards, it’s only that few standards may not apply
The number of animals used in toxicology studies is continuously increasing. Every year millions of experimental animals are sacrificed in the name of scientific research. Scientists across the world discuss about the pain, distress and death experienced by the animals during scientific experiments.
To save the decreasing number of animals on this earth, many alternatives to animal testing are proposed. However, much needs to be done in this aspect and save animals from the clutches of scien
The number of animals used in preclinical studies is continuously increasing. Each year millions of experimental animals across the world are sacrificed in the name of scientific research.
The pain, distress and death experienced by the animals during scientific experiments have been an issue of debate since long. Besides the major concern of ethics, there are few more disadvantages of using animals for scientific experiments, like requirement of skilled manpower, time consuming protocols, an
